HLT313 Safety, Quality, and Interdisciplinary Approaches to care
Week 1 Discussion
DQ1 Select and profile (a) a high-level job position you aspire to secure in your chosen allied health field and (b) a same-level position in a different and unrelated allied health care field. What educational and professional qualifications must each individual in this high-level position possess? What is the typical career path to arrive at each position? Compare and contrast the responsibilities each position entails in regards to workplace safety, risk management, and/or quality of service, and identify one element from each career path that might benefit the other.
DQ2 Review the biographical sketches of your classmates in this course and select an individual in an allied health career field or position that is different than your own current position or proposed career path. Using your readings, the GCU Library, and Internet association or government websites, identify the safety, risk-management, or quality-based scope of the classmate’s job. Engage in a dialog with the classmate about whether or not the stated responsibilities are those actually experienced by the individual. How are they the same? How are they different? What “real life” activities in this area does your classmate perform that are not discussed in the official literature? What factors may cause any discrepancies between stated and actual job responsibilities?
